Every day in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, there appears a section called "The Vent" where, appropriately, people "vent" on issues of the day...This morning, the following vent appeared, in response to the general subject of why all you "Yankees" keep moving down here.... "THIS YANKEE WOMAN ALSO MOVED SOUTH FOR THE WEATHER AND THE JOBS. GOT ME A SOUTHERN MAN AS A BONUS. THERE ARE NONE BETTER!" Enough said....and well put, for a Yankee woman.....

Sharp, He said that I understand because I AM southern and was warning me not to go the other way. I have talked to several northerners on here but have yet to meet one, so to this date I still don't know the difference. I have always heard that southerners are friendlier but again I really don't know.

Interesting, sharp....we get four distinct seasons in Georgia, and we're Southern. And you know what? We don't have the bitter cold, and the FEET of snow, that often go with it. If that's heaven, darlin', I can surely wait. As for Boopster being Southern since she's in Texas, of course she is. Georgia certainly has no lock on ALL things Southern....just the best of them.

Wait a minute Jock ... the boopster lives in Texas...are you suggesting that Georgia State has the only dibbs on being referred to as "Southern"? Are you callin' her a Yankee? lol "We're Southern, we're better, and we know it!" Hmmmm...wreaks of boorish arrogance to me! Think I'll stick with Northern men who are successful and humble, and just like to travel South once in awhile to escape the coldest part of Winter here. BTW...It doesn't get better than where I live. I experience 4 seasons, which allows me to enjoy skating or skiing on a beautiful Winter day, fly South if Winter gets too cold, and in Summer...I can enjoy living on the lake soaking up temperatures usually between 85 - 95F, only for a few days will it go over 100F, which becomes unbearable. BUT nothing like having the lake right there to cool off in. And minimal humidity...did I mention practically NO mosquitos? I live in heaven darlin'.

Thanks Jock...and I know I can count on you to bring me back on topic ... BORING... tangents are so much more fun ... Devoted...don't feel bad...I use the word 'platonic' with others too. That way, we are able to keep a friendship. Friends are important you know. The upside...I'm not telling you to fall off a cliff in rapid decent! lol

Its a Southern thing, Boopster....you know that. Besides, if you ever went "Yankee," we wouldn't let you back. Geniek, its more than just people...We're Southern, we're better, and we know it!

Yes, your blog has lost it's focus, and gone astray...possibly to new a better things... It happens to all the blogs and threads in the forums...it's part of life...we're all human...we go off on tangents...it makes life interesting. :-)

Last Summer Devoted2BwithU was the one who initiated the idea for people to meet in Atlanta, then Jock volunteered to host a B.B.Q. in his backyard, so don't forget to invite Devoted. I'm not sure I'll be able to make it Barbara...I live Northwest of Atlanta...a full day of travelling on 2 flights. Along way for a few hours at a B.B.Q. Jock would have to be one hell of a chef! lol

Sheesh! I made one little comment about going on this DR trip, and POOF!! not another word heard about the B.B.Q. at Jocks! We don't have a crystal ball Jock, you needed to let one of us gals know that you wanted someone else to carry on with the organization. Well, now we know. Ladies??? Any volunteers?

OMG...How could I have missed this??? Hilarious Jock, you can be witty. I definitely walked into that one! lol But darlin' how can one lament over something they've never experienced? Isn't that like putting the cart before the horse? As for Southern being enough...I don't know...I'm only human, but like others before me...seeing is believing! Where's the evidence?

Hey, Is this a new trip in the making? Barbara, I'm right there with you in the gym, if it's not too late for this body! My trainer said I can do it, I guess that's what I pay him for (to lie to me LOL)

You know, folks, we tried this once before, last summer as I recall, and somebody got the bright idea to go to the Dominican Republic instead. (and, from the blogs posted on the subject, that didn't turn out so good.....) So, the offer remains open....BBQ at my place, I'll cook it, but the rest remains to be handled by others....

Sharp, I think being Southern is enough, darling.... And, as to never having "had" a Southern gentleman-----is this a confession? Or, as is more likely the case, are you just lamenting the fact?

Exactly what is it about Southern men that would make this woman conclude there are none better...can you tell us the answer Jock? Living in the Northern climates...well, I've just never had a Southern Gentleman...so I am curious what makes them so special. Are we Northern gals truly missing out on something? Now I would never ask 4ws this, because he'd sum it up to butt polishing! lol

Ok...so can we inject a little humour back into this thread...as it was intended. Jockyboy...do Southern Gentleman send naked pictures of themselves to women? You know...ones flexing their biceps... Okay...if they won't do it completely naked...how about in a Speedo? Would you? lol

Young lady residing in the Phoenix area was just IMing me, and she stated she has been subjected to bad manners from the men out West! Now, what is wrong with you guys out there?
